Deloitte Presents Session 5870: Minimizing Client Impact When Performing a Large-scale Tool Transit
Leadership at a large government agency mandated that testing teams transition all activities from HP ALM to Rational Quality Manager while remaining fully engaged in day-to-day testing.

Learn how Deloitte Consulting LLP addressed these challenges by developing a comprehensive transition strategy focused on SME configuration support, report development and deep-dive training sessions to ensure a seamless transition to the new tool suite.
